Shattered

Shattered
My words are shattered on my tongue
Slicing my gums
Too afraid to swallow
But the words are broken
Will not come out
They cut up my insides
Because I have not let them out
And the blunt force
Of her words
Has shattered
The fragile words
In my mouth
Her words have hit me
Like a brick wall
Or a breaking wave
Throwing me backwards
And shattering
My words
Which so long to come out
To stop her
From shattering
Those words
On the tongues
Of others.
